Prices appear to bear no reflection as to the quality of the acts Vega + Degreed + Skin 'n Bone in York recently = £15 Robin Beck / HOL the same £15 although cancelled It's £25 - 30 to see "tribute" acts that attract 5x the audience - weird Current Foreigner / Europe / FM tour was £38 and worth every penny - 3 fantastic bands!!

Saw him 2011 on The Bare Bones Tour in Orlando. Intimate venue - c.1000 capacity Unbelievably good - just him, his acoustic guitar and a piano player. Easily in my top 5 all time gigs Wouldn't hesitate to see him again

+1 for John Wetton especially given his well documented battle with the bottle and his more recent health scares I think sometimes it looks (sounds) like he's not bothered because it comes so damn easy.

Great Band and fantastic live. Seen them 5 times and always a good show. Whilst Handwritten and American Slang are both excellent albums neither quite top The '59 Sound

Asia! John Wetton will barely acknowledge John Payne's existence let alone sing his songs. I believe Dave Gallent's biography of the band was even re-written to remove the years Payne fronted the band - sad!!

Since reforming John Wetton has given it big about how Asia can only be the original four! Seems his view has changed now Steve Howe has jacked it in! Somewhat hypocrital!! But that's a trait also demonstrated by Geoff Downes who has seemingly tried to distance himself from the Payne era. John Payne may not have the heritage of Wetton and Downes but he's just as talented and is twice

I was also at the Bingley show on Monday. FM delivered on every level - great set list and crystal clear sound. As said above they look like they are really enjoying themselves. For me Vega were more than a letdown. I'm a huge Vega fan - but the 6 song set failed to capture any audience interest. It started OK but the last 3 songs sounded out of tune to my uneducated ears!! A bad day at the

I'll try post #4 !! Perhaps with hindsight I should have used the word travesty rather than disgrace as my intended meaning seems to have got lost Oh well Live and Learn just in case there's a post #5 at some point

Been looking forward to last night for weeks! Openers Skin & Bone didnt really do it for me. Effectively a re-incarnation of Tara's Secret (who I love(d)) but felt this material was weak and one song sounded very much like the next. However vocalist Johnny Trowbridge gets 100% for effort. Next up Degreed - playing their first ever UK gig. On this showing they will play plenty more in ye

New poster - but long time lurker! For me Bleed & Scream is pretty good - but certainly not a 100% 'er
